AMSI reported local residents as saying that the Resistance attacked the Americans in the al-Bu Khamis village east of al-Hasy, sparking a half-hour battle in which various medium and heavy weapons were used.

 

The witnesses said they had no information on the nature or extent of US casualties but indicated that three Resistance fighters were killed and four others wounded.  For their part, the Americans had issued no confirmation or denial of the incident as of the time of reporting.

 

In a dispatch posted at 11:36 GMT Tuesday, Quds Press reported that Resistance men armed with light and medium weapons had attacked the American patrol, destroying one American armored vehicle.  Afterwards, the Americans closed off the area and US helicopters were seen prowling the skies overhead.

 

Resistance sharpshooter kills puppet soldier in al-Fallujah Tuesday morning.

 

In a dispatch posted at 12:05pm Baghdad time midday Tuesday, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that an Iraqi Resistance marksman shot and killed an Iraqi puppet army soldier in al-Fallujah, 60km west of Baghdad at 9:30am Tuesday morning.

 

AMSI reported a puppet security source as saying that a Resistance sharpshooter opened fire on a checkpoint manned by US and puppet troops at the southern entrance to the city.  The source said that the sharpshooter killed one puppet soldier with a direct shot to the head.  Afterwards, US and puppet troops closed the checkpoint.

 

Unidentified victim of torture, murder found in al-Fallujah.

 

In a dispatch posted at 12:05pm Baghdad time midday Tuesday, the Association of Muslim Scholars of Iraq (AMSI) reported that a puppet police patrol found the body of an unidentified man near a garbage dump in the al-Askari neighborhood of eastern al-Fallujah, 60km west of Baghdad.

Torture is a trademark of the Shii sectarian militias and the US-backed puppet security and military services of the puppet regime.  AMSI noted that the discovery of unidentified bodies had just recently become a common occurrence in al-Falluah, dozens of them having turned up in the last few days.  It was during this time that the pro-Iranian Jaysh al-Mahdi militia resumed extensive activity throughout much of the country following a period during which the Americans carried out a temporary and superficial crackdown on the organization, whose gunmen have been a major prop of the US occupation since 2005.
